    Hi all,

    In the last six hours, I received hundred of spam emails. The iMail on my Macbook Pro is just receiving these emails and I can't figure out how to stop them. I even don't receive emails from anyone (or I am not sure if I am receiving them because I select all emails and delete them).

    I tried to check iMail preferences hoping that I can find something but nothing has happened.

    Any idea about this? :confused::eek::(:mad:

    Thanks

    What service are you checking your mail with? It's an issue with your email address not the program Mail itself.

    It's not Mail, nor the Mac. An email address is an email address, regardless of the OS or client.

    Check your Address Book for bogus entries. Set the Junk Mail Rules in Mail. Have multiple addresses, separated for personal, business, and generic internet registration purposes. Look here for tons of techniques & strategies for dealing with it.
